Hunters versus Farmers

Every so often a new idea emerges that rationally explains a problem – take for instance ADD/ADHD.

Researchers have been trying to figure out the “cause” of this problem.

Today, while reading Seth Godin’s blog he discussed Thom Hartman’s writing on ADD/ADHD in respect to marketing.

Hartman proposes that what we really call ADD/ADHD is actually the human  being’s “Hunter” genes being dominant in an individual instead of the recently developed (last 10,000 years) “Farmer” gene being dominant.
